First ever Melrose Urban Farms Tour: On Saturday, June 25, 12 homes in Melrose will open up their “farms” of vegetable gardens, chicken coops, beehives and goat yard to everyone who wants to be on the tour. Modeled after the Secret Gardens Tour, you can visit these urban farms at your own pace. Tickets are $17 before June 23; buy them at the market, get your tickets online now… or get them from Miter Biter, Hourglass or Buckalew’s
A big shout out to Tim Ko (Kochanski) who has volunteered to coordinate our music this year. He has been a Melrose resident for five years and helped coordinate the past two Melrose Four Corners Music Festivals. He hosts four weekly acoustic open mics: Mondays at Devlin’s, Brighton; Tuesdays at Tommy Doyle’s, Newton; Wednesdays at Mick Morgan’s, Newton; and Sundays @ Slumbrew Beer Garden, Assembly Row. Finally, he hosts/books/promotes four monthly acoustic sessions featuring a wide variety of Boston area singer/songwriters and musicians.
Speaking of Volunteers, we are always looking for people to help out with the market. It takes a lot to coordinate the market and keep it going. If you can help either at the market or with planning and coordinating, let us know. We especially need people to help with social media and the newsletter. If you would like to help out, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
